Russia Placeholder

There’s nothing like Russia. The Russian people are tough and smart, and sweeter than you would expect. They enjoy intelligent conversation. They love their country and its proud history. Russia is beautiful. Unmistakably beautiful. Despite what you read and hear, don’t think of Russia the way people want you to think of it. Experience it for yourself, and fall in love.

Capital City: Moscow

Language: Russian. Everything in Russia is very, very Russian. It’s a beautiful language, and difficult, but you should learn a few key phrases to show interest in the culture. Know how to say “please”, “thank you”, and the like. Most of the major cities will know English.

Currency: Russian Ruble (RUB). RUB is currently 56 for 1 USD.

Power Adapter: In Russia the power sockets are of type C and F. The standard voltage is 220 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz.

Crime & Safety: Russian citizens abhor violence, and they’re lovely people. “Don’t start none, won’t be none,” as they say. It’s wise to avoid talking politics, religion, or topics that can get a little steamy, as it’s “frowned upon” by governmental authorities.

Emergency Number: 102 for Police, 103 for Ambulance.
